A Quilter's Gathering

The lovely Ms. Joanna invited me to join her on her annual trip to A Quilter's Gathering. I being sooo hard to persuade, agreed on making this treacherous journey that took us about five minutes from the Pumpkin Patch to the Radisson in Nashua, NH. LOL! Here I am, all sad to be among the quilts on exhibit...this was one of the three non-purple ones...LOL!
These were the only two quilts that I wanted to take home... maybe because they were the only ones that I could dream of making? Maybe! LOL! The things we saw, OMG! I tell you, nothing is as demoralizing to a beginner than going to a quilt show with row after row of quilts that you know you will never be good enough to make. UGH...it was a sad day...but then there were these two cuties; so I put them on my bucket list. =)

Me too, Mary. I love the one with the houses. Can you get the pattern, Brenda? Maybe we can all do it together.

Oh poor you! If I had known about the show, I could have joined you in your sadness. We could have been sad together. :) But I think it might have taken me 30 minutes to get there instead of 5...another reason to be sad. Boo hoo :)

Gorgeous quilts!
